NFL 5 43 Best sports tweets of 2011 30463890 They said nothing They+said+nothing NFL

Not all athletic organizations like their players taking to Twitter. South Carolina Gamecocks football coach Steve Spurrier (pictured) banned his players from tweeting as well as New Mexico's basketball coach. But not everyone thinks a ban is a good idea. FOXSport.com's Bill Reiter explained the issue back in August.

"Fake ppl make me sick." — @B_Lindsey7

Players for Pitt's football team took their anger to Twitter after finding out their coach was leaving for Arizona State. Their use of the social media shouldn't be a surprise -- coach Todd Graham (pictured) used a text message to let players know he was headed west.

"Crazy story, but the parrot is back home. The owners were so happy, he has been part of the family for 13 years.. #Happy4Uguys"

Not only does Henrik Lundqvist make saves as the goalie for the New York Rangers, but he also protects neighborhood pets. The goaltender even posted a picture of the parrot just in case his followers didn't believe him.

"Having a nice sit-down dinner with my dad about social media ... haha." — @PaulinaGretzky

Wayne Gretzky may have finally had enough of his daughter Paulina's wild ways being posted on Twitter, including her provocative personal photos. In fact, the Great One's daughter has been pretty quiet on Twitter lately, only posting a few times to her account since she allegedly had her chat with her father.

"As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. I feel awful about this error. Won't happen again."
— @aplusk

This series of tweets came from actor Ashton Kutcher, who seemed to be one of the last people to hear about the scandal that engulfed Penn State's football program in November. A day after the ill-advised tweets, Kutcher did in fact announce that he would hand over management of his Twitter account to a social media company he co-founded.

Athletes probably get tons of requests for signed items from their Twitter faithful and apparently Chad Ochocinco is one of those fans. We're not sure if Manchester City soccer star Mario Balotelli (pictured) actually fulfilled Ochocinco's tweet wish.

Referring to himself in third person, the Brewers' Nyjer Morgan took to his Twitter to respond to the Cardinals' Albert Pujols running to the mound in a game between the two teams. Of course, "Plush" also tweeted about the Cardinals back in September, saying, "Where still n 1st and I hope those crying birds injoy watching tha Crew in tha Playoffs!!! Aaaaahhhhh!!!"

Why talk to a coach personally when you can take your spat public over Twitter? Considering Chad Ochocinco is playing for the New England Patriots now, we assume he and the coach weren't able to work out their differences.
